CHEERLEADING AT HOLY
Being a member of any athletic team can be a valuable learning
experience. It teaches responsibility, dedication, teamwork, and
allows athletes to have fun while sharing common interests. At Holy
Cross, the cheerleaders are dedicated and hard workers. At the
college level cheerleaders are expected to have a strong
fundamental cheer background to include sharp motion technique,
dance, crowd appeal and good jump technique and tumbling. Safety is
the number one priority and cheerleaders must adhere to the safety
guidelines set forth by AACCA. The head coach will continually
evaluate the readiness of each team member to participate,
encourage a competitive spirit in the athlete, and to provide the
opportunity for continued growth of the individual cheerleader. All
team members must be willing to work together to achieve goals and
must recognize that what they do (or do not do) affects the entire
team. Student-athletes are expected to deal with conflicts in a
mature manner. They must maintain discipline with regards to their
academics, attendance and dedication in order to be successful.
Team members must promote and uphold the positive image of the
College of Holy Cross when at home or away.
The following requirements must be adhered to by all cheerleaders
at Holy Cross:
1. Respect Coach, Faculty, Students and Team members.
2. Attendance at all academic classes and a prioritization of
3. Attendance at all Holy Cross Cheerleading Practices, Games
and Events as scheduled.
4. Respect for one's self (fitness & health, appearance,
attitude & psychological readiness).
Tryouts are always in September. If anyone has any
questions about cheerleading at HC, please contact head coach Tina Marie
